How to edit my account's first/last name when using Google Sign-in

Hi community team,

 

I use Google Sign-in for my account.

 

I would lke to edit my account's first/last name when using Google Sign-in. In particular, I'd like to change mya ccount to just the last initial.

 

The rationale for this is to maintain some anonymity with prospective freelancers, who in many cases I'm finding are Googling me / connecting on LinkedIn before we have a business relationship. That's all good and fine, but it's too much, too soon.

 

I can't seem to edit the account settings at all; it requires a real password to edit, but I don't have a password because I use Google Sign-in and I can't seem to find a way to add a password or associate a regular account.

 

Automated help is not helpful in this case and I cannot find an actual ticket queue or support mechanism at UpWork, so here I am in the community Smiley Happy.

 

I would be grateful for any guidance.

 

Thank you!
